Out with the old.
With very new.
As previously reported, The Real Housewives of New York City Season 14 will feature plenty of new names and faces, as the long-running franchise undergoes a significant reboot in hopes of reclaiming its former rank-based glory.
And now? After BravoCon 2022 takes place over the weekend at The Big Apple?
We can confirm the identity of each new cast member, along with some more pressing details:
Sai De Silva, Change Hassan, Erin Dana Lichy, Lizzy Savetsky, Jessel Taank, and Brynn Whitfield will officially star in Season 14.
Filming will begin this fall.
New episodes will premiere in 2023.
The network announced they were revamping the series in March — in addition to launching a “Legacy” version of the show featuring Big Apple-based alumni from the original show.
“You know we’re at a crossroads for The Real Housewives for New York City,” Andy Cohen said at the time, referring to a controversial storyline involving Ramona Singer and other longtime stars.
“We’ve spent a lot of time figuring out where to go. And the plan we came up with, I think, is a real gift for the fans.”
Cohen also noted at the time that both programs would “take into account everything our passionate audience has really said over the past year,” which featured a major downgrade and cancellation of the Season 13 reunion.
So… who is this new addition?
Sai De Silva is an Afro-Latina, born and raised in New York. He is the creative director of Scout the City, which originated from a passion project blog and quickly developed into an online lifestyle destination.
Scout the City tells the story of Sai’s adventures in raising beautiful children from his home in Brooklyn where he lives with husband David Craig and their two children, London and Rio.
Jenna Lyons is the former President and Executive Creative Director of the J.Crew Group, where he is widely recognized as the creative force behind the rise of the American retail chain from a floundering catalog chain to one of the most coveted fashion brands in the US.
Lyons is now the Co-Founder and CEO of the direct-to-consumer beauty brand, LoveSeen.
She lives in New York City with her son Beckett.
Change Hasan is a Somali model and philanthropist who moved to New York and made it his home.
At a young age, Change fled to Kenya with her father and brother, but later moved to Canada where she was discovered by a photographer and later signed by a modeling agency.
Change is also an entrepreneur and founder of UBAHOT, a hot sauce company he built from scratch.
Erin Dana Lichy is a funny, confident and honest New Yorker, raised in Manhattan as one of five children in a close Israeli family.
Born enterprising, Erin became a real estate agent at the age of 19 and owns her own home design and renovation firm, Homegirl. Erin’s husband is a lawyer and owner of Lichy Law.
The couple share three children together and live in Tribeca.
Lizzy Savetsky is a digital influencer, activist, mother of three and wife of plastic surgeon Dr. Ira Savetsky.
A native of Fort Worth, Texas, Savetsky moved to New York to attend college and, after a brief stint in his home state, returned to the Big Apple.
Lizzy uses her platform to express her style, educates others about her deep-rooted beliefs and hosts the Instagram show “Bashert,” where she sets out to help single Jewish people find love.
Jessel Taanki is a friendly and open-minded fashion publicist and brand consultant, known for thinking outside the box. Jessel, who is of English-Indian descent, met her husband, financier Pavit Randhawa, after they were introduced by a friend at a bar.
Romance didn’t appear right away and they remained close friends for years before they started dating.
The two married in Mexico in 2014 and have twin boys.
Brynn Whitfield is a marketing and brand communications professional.
A mischievous “trophy wife in training”, Brynn has a penchant for interior design, fashion and throwing dinner parties from her (small but mighty) West Village apartment.
Hailing from a small town in the Midwest, Brynn was raised by her grandmother who taught her valuable lessons about navigating life, owning her narrative as a bi-racial woman and the true meaning of hard work.
